7 Firefox Plugins for More Effective Blogging


Firefox is a devious mistress when it comes to usability. It is still not as popular as Internet Explorer, but the download rate of Firefox shows that many people still either try it or have it as a secondary browser. Having Firefox as a secondary browser should be standard issue on all desktop computers. There are some websites that are simply not optimized for IE (Internet Explorer) but that will work for Firefox. Plus, Firefox is also a lot better for downloading and installing plugins. Some of the plugins are handy for certain tasks such as programming or blogging, but would not be suitable for general Internet browsing and use (which is where IE would come back into play). Here are a few very good plugins you can use in order to be a more effective blogger.
